BJP YOUTH LEADER ARRESTED WITH COCAINE IN KOLKATA
On Friday, youth wing leader of Bharatiya Janata Party, Pamela Goswami was arrested for possession of cocaine from south Kolkata’s Upscale New Alipore area.
The state secretary of Bharatiya Janata Yuva Morcha (BJYM), Goswami was nabbed in her car along with a friend, identified as Prabir Kumar Dey.
Around 100gm of cocaine was allegedly found in her handbag, and other parts of the car, the police said.
“She was involved in drug trafficking for quite some time. Today we got the information that she along with her supplier Prabir was reaching the spot to hand over the drugs to the purchasers,” the officer said.
“An investigation into the matter is underway. We are trying to find out whether she is involved in any drug racket.” He said.
The BJP said that it suspects the police’s role in the drugs recovery. However, If Goswami was wrong; the law should take its course.
State Minister and senior Trinamool Congress Leader Chandrima Bhattacharya slammed the BJP and said that it was a shame that even women from the party were found involved in such illegal acts. “Earlier, we saw the involvement of several BJP leaders in child trafficking and now drug trafficking. They cannot cry conspiracy every time.” She said.
A team of policemen in eight vehicles surrounded Goswami’s car and made the arrests, the police said.
